Janet Street-Porter to lead walk from Burley
8:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in Local news
The president of the Burley Bridge Association Janet Street-Porter will be in Burley-in-Wharfedale on Saturday, September 14.
The TV star and rambler will be at the Generous Pioneer pub, at 3pm, for a rally in support of the footbridge crossing of the river at Burley-in-Wharfedale. She will lead a walk to the stepping stones site of the proposed bridge.
Anyone will be welcome to join the event which the BBA hope will again highlight the lack of a safe crossing for the public to use.
Janet said: “I think it is ridiculous that there needs to be a campaign for such an obvious public amenity when the public right of way is blocked by a dangerous river for much of the time.”
BBA members hope her appearance in Burley following a good showing on the BBC MasterChef programme will prove a recipe for success.
Supporters of the campaign who wish to help with the events should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
